Let's find the Om in Comedy with this unique and fun workshop combining the practices of yoga and improv to provide you with valuable tools to help you loosen the blocks holding you back from more enjoyment, peace and ease in your day-to-day life and have some fun in the process! Join Katie Shults of Build Yoga and Pam Victor of Happier Valley Comedy for an afternoon of yoga and improv, which - believe it or not - have a lot in common! Both yoga and improv free us up to be in the present moment, take us out of old habit patterns and make us feel lighter, more relaxed and more connected to ourselves and those around us. Yay!
This workshop is great for anyone who wants to:
Practice being more present and mindful in the moment
Feel more settled in your body and soul
Learn to let go, lighten up, and learn in a supportive group
Experience spontaneous moments of awakening
Develop a deeper trust in your genuine, authentic Self
Invite more acceptance without judgment into your life
Slow the f*ck down and learn tools to continue that easeful feeling beyond the workshop
Laugh on the mat and off!
Are you stuck in old ways of thinking and feeling that youre ready to break free from? Are you ready for a good laugh, a great stretch and a little spiritual evolution? Would you like to explore the connection between yoga and improv and how it can help you be more in the moment? Let Katie and Pam take you from Frantic to Freed Up THROUGH LAUGHTER!
No experience necessary! The yoga portion takes place on mats and with light props (provided) and is appropriate for folks who have never been to a yoga class and for those who have been practicing yoga for a long time. Katie meets you where you are and provide individual instruction that helps people who are stiff, sore, tired, stressed-out or feeling just fine to reconnect with their well being and vital energy. Everybody and anybody can do the improv portion too, which involves active, easy-to-learn group improv-training exercises to facilitate personal growth. All exercises are completed in a circle or pairs; participants are never "on stage." We practice improv for learning (not for performing.) This workshop is designed so everyone along the introvert-extrovert and stiff-flexible spectrums feel comfortable and successful...with lots of laughter along the way!
As Katie and Pam like to say, Hamaste! The laughter in us honors the laughter in you.
